It should be noted that while even a prolonged passage of alternating current of a value lower than the threshold of perception does not produce adverse effects, in the case of direct current an electrolytical action may occur leading to pathological alterations.
So although the alternating currents won the war that time but the flames of the war are still alive and have entered in post-war zone.
The researchers found that applying a high-frequency alternating current for about one-third of a second stops the disorganized cells in their tracks and puts them briefly in a state of suspended animation.
Westinghouse saw the potential in ideas--such as using air to stop a train or employing high-voltage alternating current to overcome the tremendons line losses when transmitting direct current for distances greater than a half-mile.

Nor does she attain it when she's in Buffalo thinking about the way the city was lit up for McKinley's visit to the Pan American Exposition, "and all that beauty was made possible because George Westinghouse of Buffalo harnessed Niagara Falls into his alternating current, the same current that would soon be used to fry Leon Czolgosz in the electric chair." It takes a writer of some considerable deftness to keep such observations from sounding melodramatic; Ms.
